    Welp, got the top cut off, still need to graft the 75 windshield frame on at a later date as well as cap the bedside holes etc..

    In this pick you can see the start of the cage, side tubes that go through the dash are, well sticking through the dash.

    I will be doing a write up of the conv conversion when everything is complete. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Nice! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've been wanting to do the same thing. Do you know about how much weight you have lost? (Blazer).

    It's not necessary, it's nice if you want to install the factory hardtop at some point which I will not, it also looks factory and does not have the gap after a cut, the main reason I want to do it is so I can install a piece of 1"x1" (or bigger if I can) stock to the inside of the windshield frame, kind of like a peg setup, should make that area much stronger.

    Looks good so far !! I am gonna do my 78 Jimmy soon hopefully. Yeild2me had problems with his doors sagging after his, what are you gonna do for this? He welded the windshield frame to his cage.
